Hi, I'm making a movie right now entitled "Final Showdown" about a cop that is trying to find a kidnapped daughter of a wealthy crime boss. It's a big action chase film. There is a scene where the kidnappers send the police a picture of the kidnapped daughter. Here is where a very helpful person would come in: I need a pic of the daughter with like tape over their mouths or something of the like to show that they are kidnapped. I have two female friends, but they are already in the movie playing other characters. Is there anyone out there that would be nice enough to help me out? I know it's kinda an odd request, but it would really help me out. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If anyone is interested, let me know and I can supply an email address. Thank you sooooooooo much in advance.

I'd say it's more Darkman than Shadow. Speaking of Darkman, is there anyone else out there that likes the movie? I've always been a big fan of it, but I've never really heard of anyone else that is.

Maybe I will. I've always wanted to see a fan film made about the character. I've thought about it before, but it never really came together.

No way, it's the invisible man! biggrin

And Darkman is awesome! The best comic book-movie adaptation of its time (eventhough it wasn't really an adaptation). Now there's one, maybe two that beat it out.

Wow, how did his simple friendly request turn into such a freak show? Guess there are no girls around here... curious. cool

I think it's because his request was pretty creepy.



That, and how does a guy only know two girls? that's.....Practically impossible...

It seems a bit weird that there will be a photo of the kidnapped daughter but she doesn't need to feature as an actor later in the movie? I'm guessing the rescue arrives a little too late!

Maybe the two female actors in the movie might know some women other than just each other?

You *might* need to tweak the script a little to use this one...



Note - no animals were harmed in the photoshopping of this image! smile

Be cautious when searching for some stuff like this on google, though. It's a big world out there and you never know what google's going to find - searching for crime-related stuff like this can sometimes throw up some unpleasant or unexpected results.

Bear in mind it's not always easy to tell whether something is fictional or an actual kidnap photo.

Well, unless Waser or Sollthar are involved.

I admit, it did sound alittle creepy after I typed it. It's no big deal though, I ended up doing a google image search and everything worked out.

And yes the rescue does happen alittle too late.

not being funny or anything, but isnt 24 a copyrighted program, and you have to have the copyright owners permision to use even a single frame?

I'm making a film. This detective has a bunch of pictures of naked women that this other guy took before killing them, but I don't have any because the women I know are already in it. So please if you are a hot chick over 18, post a pic of your boobs and help me finish this great movie.

Not only that, but most of the images found on searches are copyrighted. Very rarely, in fact, will you find royalty free stock images by searching Google...
